gender pay gap
Women earn less than men.
What is the gender pay gap? The story you think you know—that women earn 76 cents on the dollar compared to men—doesn't paint a complete picture. According to PayScale's report, Gap Analysis: What Equal Pay Day Gets Wrong, is packed with data to help you learn the whole truth about women, work, and pay equity.
The first thing to know is that, no matter how you slice it, there is a gender pay gap. Do men really make more than women? Yes. The gender pay gap is very real. But the best-known stat—that women earn 76 cents for every dollar earned by men (according to PayScale's latest data)—only tells part of the story. This stat is representative of the uncontrolled—or "raw"—gender pay gap, which looks at a median salary for all men and women regardless of job type or worker seniority. When looking at the uncontrolled gap, it is true that the median salary for men is roughly 24 percent higher than the median salary for women.
